Feds, police searching for alleged bank robber

ATLANTA -- Federal authorities and the Gwinnett County Police Department are hoping the public can help them identify and locate a man they said robbed a Norcross bank Friday.

At approximately 12:42 p.m., according to reports, the man walked into the Wachovia on Holcomb Corners wearing a motorcycle helmet and silver law enforcement badge and "verbally announced a bank robbery to a bank teller while threatening a weapon."

The man left without incident and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, reports said.

The man is described as a light-skinned black man in his late 30s, between 5 feet, 8 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing 175 pounds. In addition to the helmet and badge, the man wore dark sunglasses, a black leather jacket and a black shirt with white lettering that possibly read "POLICE."

The man, reports said, is possibly injured from an exploding dye pack.

Authorities are calling the man a serial bank robber who is also believed to have robbed a Sandy Springs bank in October. He reportedly left in a black, two-door Infiniti after that incident.

Anyone with information is urged to call the FBI's Atlanta office at 404-679-9000.
